Must See – America’s ‘Perfect Storm’: 7 Different Storms (video, left), Bob Jones/Bonnie Jones
CS Commentary: Bob Jones passed away Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014. Original trance/vision in the 1990’s, then Bob released this video in 2010. Perfect storm was to begin sometime after Oral Roberts death. He died in 2009. Storm 1 – Government/Political. The true government of the church will rise up. Christians will begin having an authoritative voice. Storm 2 – Spiritual. People are going to diviners to find the truth. This will bring no hope. The real prophets will begin to come forth. Spiritual authority will come. Storm 3 – Financial. The evangelist will come in. You are going to begin to see the Lord’s Woodstocks [as a result of financial trauma]. Greater wealth will come into the church than ever before. Storm 4 – Social. We have had too much hierarchy and not enough relationship. Unity will come and each person will find his place. Home meetings will have an anointing. This will be where people get equipped for the harvest. Focus on building ‘barns’ – home meetings. No barns, no ability to handle the harvest. Storm 5 – Emotional. A very dangerous storm. People are going to ‘lose it.’ The home groups are to calm people’s emotions and show them the light. Storm 6 – Infirmity. Media will scare people. Media is the ‘new terrorist.’ The Saints have the say, not the devil or his people. Storm 7 – Geo-physical. Earthquakes and shaking. Believers can take authority for less death. Revelation about where to be and when to be there. There will be volcanoes and tidal waves. Natural process in the earth we can’t stop, but we can stop the death. Volcanic eruptions will affect seasons. Fungus, blights, droughts, famines. Energy can become cheap through cold fusion? We are in a time of Jeremiah 33:3 and Isaiah 48:6-7. August 2008 Vision of 3 Elders. The 2010’s were to be symbolized by a people with the faith of God, 2020’s by the rest of God. In CS’s opinion, think of these decade symbols as beginning in that decade and then continuing to move forward and increase in the life of the church. Great words from Bob, particularly around the 35:00-36:00+ part of this video. For historical reference, Billy Graham died February 21, 2018. Must see video – if you only watch one Spiritual Life video this month, this should be it!
CS Evaluation: The Most Vivid Dream I’ve Ever Had (video, above right), Sid Roth Its Supernatural
CS Evaluation of Sid Roth’s Dream: We disagree with the posted interpretation of this dream, but not with the prophetic words spoken over Sid in the interpretation video. We believe this to be a personal dream giving specific direction and encouragement to the dreamer. To continue reading see this link
Sid’s Prophetic Dream Interpreted (video, right), Sid Roth It’s Supernatural
CS Commentary: See our comments above on the interpretation if this dream. We don’t necessarily disagree with anything that this brother, Adam, says, in general – he is speaking prophetically, not interpretively – but we do not believe that what he says has much to do with the interpretation of Sid’s dream. For our interpretation see our commentary/evaluation on the first video, above. Note that the ‘turning over’ in Sid’s dream could be viewed in light of Adam’s prophetic word to him in this video, as Sid – not retiring, as our interpretation above – but ‘turning over’ his ministry at some point in the future to pursue a new chapter in God’s destiny for him.
CS Commentary: From what we remember this amalgamation of prophetic words were given between 2007 and 2014 by Kim Clement in different cities across America. Some of the words are repeated in the 5 minute audio, but you get a good idea of the major things Clement prophesied long before Trump even decided to run for office.

Must See – Robert Henderson Shares 4 Dreams About President Trump (video, left), Crossroads Community Church
CS Commentary: Here is a good example of four dreams that feature the President as a literal figure, himself, and not a symbol – though, of course, the President by virtue of who he is is always a symbol, even when representing himself. Many times the President or some other iconic figure in our dreams will represent parts of ourselves or stand in for someone else in our lives with ‘Presidential’ qualities. This is not one of those cases and the interpretations offered here seem to us very ‘right on.’ Must viewing especially for anyone who stills has questions about President Trump. Amen and Amen. See the CS Dream Interpretation Page for more on dream interpretation.
CS Commentary: Elsewhere on this site we feature Tom Horn’s predictions regarding the Popes, the Vatican and the End Times. This video takes one behind the scenes of some of Horn’s predictions and explains the dark inner workings of the Vatican and its top officials. We don’t know of Taylor, but he seems credible and to know what he’s talking about. Really interesting and definitely not a waste of time for those interested in this fascinating subject. See our Spiritual Life-Prophecy-Interpretation Page for more.
CS Commentary: Black Lives Matters is a radical left wing group that promotes racism and hate against police and promotes the lie that police pose the greatest threat to young black men today (see article below, or on Home Page, in More Common Sense). In 2019 alone almost 90 police officers were killed. 10 unarmed blacks were killed by police officers and in almost every instance those blacks were assaulting the police officer in question, at times with weapons or with cars. Police officers killed more unarmed white men than African-Americans. Osteen says that he was marching for George Floyd’s family, but his actions seem to indicate a lack of wisdom at the very least.
CS Commentary: Is Robertson losing it? Maybe he wasn’t watching the same events unfold across the US that we were. When multiple Democrats city mayors and Democrat governors fail to take action and let chaos reign, Federal action is needed to restore order. Trump’s words had nothing to do with taking action against peaceful protest or those concerned with justice for Floyd.

Must Hear – New Direction For This Season: Since When Did The Church Become A Meeting? (audio only, click this link) Terry Bennett, 5/10/20, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: Terry’s message starts a little after 30:00. What we are experiencing now is a ‘Baby Pandemic.’ This is not what Terry has previously seen where the church will not be able to meet. That will be brought on by persecution of the church in the US. To continue reading commentary/synopsis see here

Special Update/Must See – The Meaning Of The Present Covid-19 Crisis Relative To What Is Coming The Next Decade (video, left), Sunday Service 4/19/20, Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: This message and the video to the right complement each other. The whole message is good and worth listening to but the relevant portion directed to Coronavirus, the meaning of this crisis, and the church, on the video at left, begins around 1:28 (1 hour, 28 minutes in). At 1:35: There is a greater shaking coming…To continue reading see this link…
CS Commentary: Note that Sadhu now says that he does not know when this second more terrifying plague is coming. Previously he said it was coming before a vaccine for the Covid-19 could be found. We attribute this to prophetic protocol: the Lord may ask true prophets to say things for the purpose of motivating people to repentance and action, hoping that their actions will enable Him to delay judgement (Jer. 18). This is not misinterpretation or prophetic error, though those do occur among less mature or false prophets.
Signs Of The Times: The Ministry Of Elijah, 2/5 2013 (video, left), Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: According to Terry, the Lord told him that it will only be in the darkest of times that the glory of the Lord will arise in the USA. There will be no election solution for the US. Before this time of Coronavirus crisis, in 2013, Terry speaks of many of the events unfolding in our nation today –
Around 15;00: ‘If you can feel it, you are meant to see it.’ Feeling is one of the spiritual senses, seeing is another. We are at the beginning (in 2013) of the rise of Haman and the plot to take down America and to persecute the church. At 16:00 he starts the bulk of the message on 1 Kings. At 21:00 he talks about how we project our own ideas on to Biblical characters and the Bible. Elijah is Elijah. Elijah himself will return. To run is to see God replace you. Elijah found that out the hard way. Salvation is not the end or the goal, just part of the way back. A wise Master Builder is after original intent – first purpose, the Bride of Christ. When God has His kind, He will return. At 34:30 – so many doctrines going on in the church that have nothing to do with God. At 38:00 – we are about to see the true prophetic ministry arise again in the earth. What has been going on so far is false. The true prophetic ministry always confronts the old ministry, which has compromise and mixture. God never wants too many. Gideon had too many. At 47:00 – God will start by having the Spirit of Elijah confront the false prophets within the church. It is going to begin within the church. The answer for this hour is the ministry of Divine Authority back in the earth. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Elijah appears.
At 1:02 – When God interrupts us, He is testing us, to see if we want what we are praying for. 1:05 – A vision: Do you give up your name? What’s in a name? Your identity. At the name of Jesus every knee bows and every tongue confesses. God is not calling us to the possible, but to the impossible. The beginning of all true ministry is the burden of the Lord. God must break our own reputation and our desire to make a name for ourselves.

CS Evaluation – Precious Metals? How Christians Can Respond To Current Financial Trends, Dexter P. Lyons, Charisma
CS Evaluation: In general, there is some good advice here, though we don’t agree with some of the details. Technically, the Fed is not ‘monetizing’ the debt ( ) – if it were the U.S. would be in a serious and precarious situation reminiscent of nations like Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and others which have quickly gone on to experience hyperinflation and social-economic collapse. For more, see . Silver is probably the better buy over gold for now. Many see gold continuing up, but we are more contrarians on this subject. Gold is at its highest point since 2011-2012, when it almost hit $2000 an ounce. What is has going for it: continued economic uncertainty and volatility, at least for the short term; dwindling supply; increasing demand. Depressors on the price? An economic turn for the good, increasing stock market, interest rates that turn up, and any discovery that finds more supply or increases mining potential. The production cost of gold is anywhere from about $900 to $1200/ounce, so gold could possibly fall into that range again before going higher. We feel that, medium term at least, gold is likely to be lower before it tests and exceeds $2000 again. But, only time will tell. That said, if you don’t own any physical gold it is always a good time to buy some.
CS Evaluation (see below): Prophetic Dream: Trump Catches The Big One (video, left), Bonnie Jones/Bob Jones
CS Evaluation: We do not believe this dream is about President Trump, the economy, or the gold standard. It is about the retrieval of a destiny that has been lost because of a poor decision made about twelve years ago.

CS Evaluation: We don’t believe the Coronavirus economic ‘event’ will immediately lead to financial ruin. The stock market, separate from the economy and leading it by about 6 months, will come back sooner. Goldman Sachs is predicting a third quarter recovery, others sooner, or slightly later. The economy will come back in stages and recovery will be different – some businesses will thrive, others will go out of business. The world has changed, no doubt, but the consumer has always come back after crisis. Longer term, this crisis continues to set the US and other nations up for an eventual global debt explosion – but this should happen later, into the late 2020’s or 2030’s.
CS Evaluation: John Paul Jackson Prophesied About A Second Pandemic, Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: As we’ve said previously, no, this is not the End Times virus that JPJ prophesied about – a little checking would have made that clear to Charisma. According to the website JPJ founded, Streams Ministries, JPJ prophesied about an End Times virus that would be typified by red splashes or a red rash. He also prophesied about another virus before that one that would create a lot of fear and be thought to be the one to worry about. That sounds a lot like Coronavirus – but only time will tell. As we’ve shown, H1N1 in 2009 was so far a lot worse than this one in terms of infected and number of deaths. But, it is still early – and regardless, for various reasons, mostly the contagion effect and the uncertainty, Coronavirus has caused a lot more fear and panic. For more on this, see the Common Sense Interpretation section, below.
Michael Snyder Says John Paul Jackson’s ‘Perfect Storm’ Prophecy Is Happening Now – Is It? Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: Though there is much continued potential for Jackson’s prophecy to begin to unfold, we don’t believe that we are there yet. Snyder mentions Trump’s impeachment, worsening manufacturing numbers, and ‘plummeting global trade’ as signs. Dubious. Jackson referred to a confluence of events as evidence of the ‘perfect storm.’ As John Paul himself says in the video above in Must See Videos (see our updated commentary), it is a confluence of crises in 5 areas: economic, government, religious, war, and geo-physical. It is not just one event in each area, but many events in each area that will occur at the same time. No, the ‘Perfect Storm’ prophecy is not here yet.
Predictions about the Future Price of Gold – see The Perfect Storm Commentary in Must See Videos above.
The Stock Markets, Money And The Bible, Michael Brown, Charisma
CS Evaluation: A pretty one-sided treatment of money and investing, and fear-based relative to the stock markets. Proverbs also has plenty of other wealth advice like ‘throw your seed on many waters’, etc.

The Gift Of Prophecy Vs. The Ministry Of The Prophet (video, right), Jeremiah Johnson
CS Commentary: This is a good beginning on the distinction between the gift and the office. 1 Corinthians 12-14 delineates the gift, while Jeremiah 1, 18 and 23 elaborates on the office and true ministry of the prophet. While any believer may prophesy or operate in the gift at any time, there are those who have the gift of prophecy. Of those who have the gift there are fewer who are called into the ministry of a prophet. Miriam is a type of the ministry of a prophet; Moses is a type of the office of prophet (see Numbers 12). Of those who have the ministry of prophet, there are even fewer who attain the office of prophet. Even in the office of prophet, there are distinctions between personality, function, and call. For some of this theology, see 1-2 Kings. Also see Sadhu Selvaraj’s messages on prophets and the prophetic.

Quotes Of The Month:
“On May 13 of last year Beijing declared a “people’s war” on the United States. This means the contest with China is existential. There is going to be one survivor. It is going to be either the Peoples’ Republic of China or the United States of America, not both.” — Gordon Chang, for Gatestone Institute, ‘China: What We Must Do, What We Must Not Do’
